History

The history of the estate is the history of the Rossi family. Sergio Rossi, who had a passion for viticulture and wine making, moved to Montalcino at the beginning of the 1970s. Together with his cousin Giulio Consonno he established and managed the “Altesino” and “Caparzo” estates and he then established his own estate, “La Gerla”. His son Alessandro, after having graduated in psychology at the University of Padua, followed his father and moved to Montalcino in1996. At the beginning he worked with his father and then he started up his own estate, “La Gerla di Rossi Alessandro”, in 1998. For many years Alessandro produced high quality grapes that were sold to his father. When unfortunately Sergio passed away in 2011, Alessandro started making wine with his own grapes. Alessandro always owns a part of his father’s estate.
